Description of problem:
When editing RPM spec files, the universal argument is no longer
bound to C-u. Therefore, lots of body memory typing causes errors,
C-u SPC should jump to last mark but instead beeps,
C-u 2 C-k should kill the next two lines but instead beeps
and kills to the end of the line
It may be lost from other modes, since it is supposed to be global.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a file with ".spec" extension.
2. Attempt to use the universal argument, i.e., C-u 6, or some other
Actual Results: beep
Expected Results: `universal-argument' should have gathered the 6 to pass
to the next command, such as C-n to move down 6 lines.
